When apart, which gaskets did you replace? Why did you replace the air flow meter, was it bad? Have you tested the fuel pressure?

There is about 50 psi of fuel pressure in the feed line, open that line and introduce your gauge, not the line returning fuel to the tank. It should read 3.0 bar at idle with the vacuum line removed from the fuel pressure regulator.
